Why is it important to speak good words? To reveal if you are a true believer of Jesus Christ or do not know God at all. And, to bring life, not death, to believers and non-believers. We continue on in our James 3 Bible Study and in Part 2, we share examples of good words and examples of bad words and you can see where your words are at now.
This is difficult to do to watch our mouths and continue to speak good towards others and yourself. We all have sinned and have our stumbling blocks, including our words we speak, write, and think. God knows what we are thinking so you cannot hide behind flattery or insincere words. He knows all our thoughts, opinions, judgements, and biases, no matter how evil and cruel they are.
Pray today for God to reveal anything in your heart towards other people, towards God, towards the church, and towards yourself. We also share practical tips on not getting involved in bad words, like gossip, rumors and more, and what to do in those situations.
